Blissful Memories

Blissful Memories offers one of the only Green Friendly pet disposition facilities within the state of Ohio and beyond. Our 50+ years of combined experience within the animal industry has allowed us to cater to the individual needs of each and every pet owner.

About Us

Timothy Sparks and his wife, Sara Bliss, D.V.M. opened Bliss Veterinary Services upon her graduation from Ross University in 2011. Along with their two children, Marie, and Cheyenne, Tim and Dr. Sara also share their home with Chocolate, BB, Milly, Poppy the Pug, and their island dog, Cinch. Tim and Dr. Sara raise beef for commercial and club calf sales and also own and operate an equestrian facility.


Hydrocremation has held the national spotlight in the human funeral industry for the past four years. Although extensive, its application within the animal industry has been limited to large research facilities and universities– until now. Advances in technology, coupled with old science has resulted in a process that is cost-effective for the pet industry.

We at Blissful Memories have spent over four years corresponding with regional veterinarians, county animal shelters, the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency, and the Ohio Department of Agriculture to ensure that hydrocremation is a viable and safe alternative for pet disposition.

The process of hydrocremation is cost-effective and eco-friendly in comparison to traditional cremation. The end products include calcium phosphate bone remains which are processed for private returns, and a sterile, homogenous liquid which is safe for water table discharge or land application as fertilizer.

With the ever changing parameters of the pet industry, the focus of quality care, environmental impact, and economic viability have never been more important to pet owners. Hydrocremation addresses these concerns in a manner beneficial to the industry, the clientele, and the environment.
